Hey! Can you guys give a rough estimate of how much priming sugar is needed for a 5 gallon batch and for a single 12oz bottle. I have a bag of corn sugar for use.

Cheers!!

Bulk priming is better,as it's more uniform & doesn't matter what size the bottle is. Here's a priming calculator I use to weigh out the right amount of priming sugar; http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html
You can go to the volumes of co2 box & insert the desired number for whatever style you're doing.
Priming in the bottle isn't as good,imo.

I added my response before I went off to the kitchen to clean my bottling bucket from last night's bottling episode. Must of thought quick that time.

3/4 cup of corn sugar is a good approximation, but as unionrdr said, depends on style, and measuring by weight is more accurate.
